Post Science fiction space film in the works   Posted on: Sun Nov 09, 2014 10:43 pm
Hello everyone,

I'm new here, so if what I'm posting isn't permitted, please let me know.

Anyway, I'm working on a short film that I hope to later turn into a feature, and I figured I'd mention it here - you all seem like you might be interested in this (I've been a space fan since the Gemini days, and I would have been since Mercury if I'd been old enough to realize what was going on).

The film is "...and miles to go before i sleep."

"A deadly flu pandemic strikes Earth as a team of astronauts work on the moon. A solar storm wipes out communications and an injury forces them to leave for Earth "in the blind," not knowing what to expect back home. "

What's unusual about this film, especially for an independent short film, is the level of realism we're trying to achieve. We have some plans for simulating zero-g by using a rotating spacecraft set (rotated between shots, so that what was up is now down or left or right, etc.), along with some other tricks. We'll also be simulating the one sixth gravity on the moon, something I don't believe I've ever seen another film attempt.

We're also working to make the spacecraft set realistic. The instrument panels are based on those found in spacecraft from Mercury through the Space Shuttle. Not exact, but based on them. Some will even be interactive so that when the actors press a button, something will happen.

It's ambitious, yes, but it would be cheating if it weren't.

The website has links to photos, videos, social media sites and downloadable wallpapers, etc. Visit the site and see what the film is all about!

Again, if this isn't something appropriate for this forum, please let me know and I'll delete the post or see if I can have an admin do it. I don't want to break any forum rules.

- Dave
